Market square, Wismar.
Strategically sited on a promontory on the Bay of Wismar, facing Poel Island, Wismar started life in the 13th century as a Hanseatic town. In 1648, at the closing of the Thirty Years' War, it became Swedish and remained it until 1903.
Wismar's Brick Gothic historic centre is now protected by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
